I know you said not to reply if it was free, but mine were only technically free. My mom’s coworker is an amateur photographer and needed props for her newborn session. In exchange for crocheted props, she gave me photo time. So, I spend 20 hours on an item, she spends 20 hours taking and editing the pictures.

If you’re any sort of crafty, see if you can work something similar out with the photographer. Props for pics.

Mine were $75 for an hour session and 25 photos on a disc. I think the best route to take is find someone good who is just starting off. They are so egar to build their portfolio that they wont charge you much.

Looking at the photgraphy programs at local colleges is a good start.

freckledjasmin:  most photographers in my area included them as part of the wedding package. My package price wouldve been the same with or without our e-pics

Our photographer offers different packages and we chose the one that included an engagement session.  I am also in Boston so I suggest looking up Nicole Baas Photography. When researching Boston photographers I found that she offered the most for an affordable price. we also get an album included and 9 hours of wedding day coverage. I very recently posted our engagement photos if you want to lurk and check them out.

freckledjasmin:  My photographer offered a package that included an engagement shoot, boudoir shoot, all day wedding with 2 photographers, $200 print credit, slideshow, and print release on all images on DVDs for $2100.  I think a photo session (engagement, maternity, etc) with DVD and print release is $350 a la carte from her.

ours is included in our wedding package, but if we wanted an extra engagement session (if our package didn’t include it) it is 400 dollars for a 3 hour shoot

It was included in our package, but I think a single shoot with our photographer was 1000. The package made it worth it!

$400 for the shoot and rights to all of the photos plus a disk of edited photos. Many photographers in my area charge $250+ for just the session and then another $500 for the photo disk/rights. I’m willing to spend more because I absolutely fell in love with the photographers!

Ours were included in our wedding package and then they gave a $350 credit towards an album/canvas/prints/etc. We ended up paying $550 (after the $350 credit) to get all of the pictures on a disc (we got 70 pictures), because we loved them all. Our photographers are really expensive though and I know other photographers in the area have much lower prices.
